We’re an NIH-NIBIB designated Center for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering to promote public health by advancing new technological paradigm in intraprocedural, image-guided decision making.
Light-Based Technologies in Human Health
Advances in light-based technologies, like those developed at the National Center for Interventional Biophotonic Technologies (NCIBT), bring forth an opportunity for more precise and timely assessments of tissue physiology, biochemistry and metabolism. These assessments are critical in managing a great number of medical conditions including cancer, stroke, infection, trauma, and cardiovascular and degenerative diseases. Given the prevalence of these afflictions around the world, improvement in the imaging technologies that help treat them has the potential to dramatically improve human health.
Mission: Promote public health by advancing a new technological paradigm designed to address unmet needs in intraprocedural, image-guided decision making.
Vision: Optical devices that are scalable, easily deployed, and readily interfaceable within a unique platform able to provide real-time actionable feedback.
